Apple Distinguished School

We were recently recognised as an Apple Distinguished School and it's a great honour.  Not because it has anything to do with the Apple product, but rather, because the excellent work done by teachers and students over a long period of time has been acknowledged.  Only four schools in NSW have received this accolade and MOPS is the only public school.  It says a lot about our school.

We'd like you to follow us on Twitter.  Click on the link in the sidebar, follow us and get messages about what's going on here at MOPS.  In particular, find out when the weekly newsletter is available to read online.  We can get news of cancellations and other changes to routine out to you really quickly via Twitter.

If you've never used Twitter before, don't be phased by it.  It's easy and it'll help to make our communication with parents a lot better.  So, what are you waiting for?

Support Programs

Rocket Reading

Rocket Reading is a literacy program aimed at children in the early years of school who require a little extra assistance with reading and writing. Each child has 3 x 1/2  hour lessons per week where they work individually with a teacher or trained parent volunteer. Each lesson follows a structured format that includes reading familiar and new texts, improving sight word recognition, writing and spelling. There is also a small homework component.

Parent Helpers

If any parents are able to come in and help with reading groups it would be greatly appreciated.

Our reading groups are held:

Tuesday 9.10-10.10
Wednesday 9:30- 10:00 and then 10:40-11:30
Thursday 9:30- 10:30

We know everyone is busy so understand if you can’t make it but would be great to see a few of you in the classroom.

School Attendance


Good attendance at school is one way of ensuring that a child is given every opportunity to succeed.  Patterns of poor attendance, including late arrival at school as well as whole day absences, often lead to under achievement and social concerns.
